Tequila Lime Grilled Shrimp

Ingredients.SERVES 6

2 pounds large shrimp, unpeeled
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup tequila
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 medium shallots, finely chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup olive oil
Lime slices
1 bunch watercress

Directions

1. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 1 hour. This will prevent them from burning when grilled.

2. Thread the shrimp on the skewers (3 to 4 to each skewer). Lay in a shallow, non-aluminum dish, large enough to hold
     the skewered shrimp.

3. To prepare the marinade: Whisk together the limejuice, tequila, garlic, shallots, cumin, salt, and pepper. Slowly add the
    olive oil, whisking until combined. Taste for seasoning.

4. Pour over the shrimp and marinate for at least ? and up to 4 hours.

5. Prepare the barbecue for medium-heat grilling.

6. Grill the shrimp on each side for about 4 minutes or to desired doneness. Remove from the grill and take the shrimp off
    the skewers. Garnish with the fresh watercress and lime slices. Serve with the salsa immediately.

Cook's Notes:
This may be prepared 4 hours in advance through step 4 and refrigerated.
